Feminized seeds in the context of cannabis cultivation refer to seeds that have been specifically bred to eliminate male chromosomes, thereby ensuring that nearly all plants that germinate from these seeds will be female. Female cannabis plants are the ones that produce the buds sought after for their high cannabinoid content, particularly tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), which are used for both recreational and medicinal purposes. To create feminized seeds, breeders often induce a female plant to produce pollen, which is typically a male plant’s role. This is achieved through various methods, such as stressing a female plant or treating it with a solution of colloidal silver or a hormone. The pollen from the female plant is then used to pollinate another female. Since the resulting seeds have no male chromosomes, the likelihood of them developing into flowering female plants is greatly increased. This is particularly advantageous for growers who seek to maximize their yield of consumable cannabis flowers without the need to identify and remove male plants, which do not produce consumable flowers and can pollinate females, leading to seeded buds. Feminized seeds have revolutionized cannabis cultivation by simplifying the growing process and increasing efficiency, especially for those operating under legal constraints or with limited growing space.
